Defend Human Rights! Boycott Dasani!
by Boycott for Peace
Saturday Oct 25th, 2014 6:02 PM
Dasani profits from selling drought stricken Californian tap water, while contributing to the dire and on-going water crisis in Palestine. Here you will find everything you need to educate yourself and others about the on-going issues, including an educational meme you can share, blog, tweet, and pin.

Access to adequate safe, clean water is a human right. A human right that Israel denies the Palestinian people.

Coca Cola’s ties to Israel and the illegally occupied territory:

The Dasani – Coke connection is documented on Coca Cola’s web site:

There are many other reasons to boycott Coca Cola brands, some are listed here:

Dasani is just tap water from drought stricken California:

Coca Cola’s impact in the illegally occupied territories and its support of Israel contributes to many Palestinian water issues:

“An estimated 1.2 million Palestinians in Gaza still have no running water. In addition, insufficient electricity supplies bar them from treating or pumping sewage, causing a risk of pandemic diseases such as cholera or typhoid.”

“Israel targeted one water tank, 26 wells, three desalination plants and dozens of sanitary sewer lines during its war on Gaza.”

Israel also targeted agricultural water infrastructure during their most recent bombardment of the Gaza strip, vastly curtailing Palestinian farmers’ ability to care for livestock and produce crops:

Israeli policy of destroying Palestinian access to water also affects the West Bank:

Israel has a long history of depriving Palestinians adequate access to water:
